(CNN) — Four U.S. military personnel are being held by the Libyan government, a senior U.S. Defense Department official told CNN on Friday.
.
The four are believed to have been detained by the ministry of the interior, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

It was not immediately known why the American personnel were being held. “We are seeking to further ascertain the facts and ensure their release,” said the official.

The four were in Libya “augmenting security at the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli,” the official said.

That is a very very bad sign.

"What difference does it make? /sarc

What difference does it make?
It makes no difference at all.

The Libyans should feel free to saw their captives head off because there will be no protest or retribution from the Obama/Democrat Party regime that is currently snuffing out the life of the American republic.

That's an awful thing to say, but I think it's the truth.
Obama and his communist Democrat Party don't car a whit about American military personnel or for that matter the defense of USA.

In addition to Obama, we have McCain, Graham and Corker to thank for this one.
